It's really simple to have VLC Player installed offline on your Ubuntu. The
only thing you'll need is the vlc package that can be found very easily.
After you get your vlc*.deb pkg all you have to do is to install it with the

dpkg -i yourPKG.deb

Now, abt your internet connectivity I can't help you much without knowing
wich system are you on!
